Life Retrospection

written by: Thaddeus Hutyra



Images flicker
Before my eyes
That like film frames.

Paintings of the masters!

Leonardo da Vinci
Rafael Santi
Michelangelo Buonarroti
Claude Monet
Jan Matejko
Stanislaw Wyspianski
Pablo Picasso
Rene Magritte
Salvador Dali
Andy Warhol
Zdzisław Beksinski…

To name, to name, to name!

Paintings that are
A reflection of soul
Of the world and man!

I feel hypnotized
While staring
At those masterpieces.

For I discover
Also myself in them!

My life
From the moment
I was born
To this day.

They give me insight
Even into my own death
Leaving unanswered questions.

Ah, human fate!
The great unknown
In the infinity symbol!

Retrospekcja życia

written by: Tadeusz Hutyra


Przewijają się przed moimi oczami obrazy
Co jak kadry filmowe.

Obrazy mistrzów!

Leonardo da Vinci
Rafael Santi
Michał Anioł Buonarroti
Claude Monet
Jan Matejko
Stanislaw Wyspiański
Pablo Picasso
Rene Magritte
Salvador Dali
Andy Warhol
Zdzisław Beksiński…

Wymieniać, wymieniać, wymieniać!

Obrazy co duszą, odzwierciedleniem
Świata i człowieka!

Wpatrzony w nie
Czuję się zahipnotyzowany.

Albowiem odkrywam w nich i siebie!

Moje życie od poczęcia
Po dzień obecny.

Dają mi wgląd
Nawet w moją własną śmierć
Pozostawiając pytania bez odpowiedzi.

Ach, człowieczy los!
Wielka niewiadoma w znaku nieskończoności!
